Overcoming Patient Reluctance & Provider Discomfort to Engage in Advance Care Planning (Advance Directive and Person-Centered Care Planning Series 2)


Description: Among the many barriers to Advance Care Planning, patient reluctance and provider discomfort play large roles. In this highly interactive workshop, we’ll discuss concrete behavioral strategies for overcoming the fears that prevent patients from planning for end-of-life care or times when they are incapacitated. Specific topics include employing the spirit of Motivational Interviewing, normalizing doubts, and helping patients understand the benefits for their family members when they decline to plan. The importance of codifying patient wishes and uploading them to health information exchanges through AD Vault will be stressed. Case illustrations will be used throughout.

Facilitators: Barry J. Jacobs, Psy.D, Jean Glossa, MD, MBA, FACP Corey Main, MBA, & Nathaniel Curry
